"You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."
This Maya Angelou quote sums up my journey to where I am now with Happy By Harper, my little business that aims to bring happiness to myself and others. If you had asked me a year ago, I would have said I didn't have a creative bone in my body.
But, it turns out, creativity comes in many different forms. Each one, as important and as wholesome as another.
Happy By Harper started from a not very positive place. I had poor mental health, and even tiny
things were getting the better of me.
And so it began - step by step, every little creative thing I did, I felt like more and more light was coming in. Making a couple of candles in my kitchen, after a friend suggested I give it a try. Having a go throwing pots on my Mum's pottery wheel one long weekend in Devon. Going for long walks to clear my head in London, picking wildflowers from deserted industrial land, pressing them at home and making them into cards.
